    NY Fed Releases Next Month's Buying Schedule
    "Across all operations in the schedule listed below, the Desk plans to purchase approximately $44 billion and sell approximately $43 billion in Treasury securities over the month of April."

    There were some slight changes in the size of the buybacks... 2036-2042 range down from $1.75-2.25 bln to $1.50-2.00 bln. 2020-2022 Buybacks down from $4.50-5.25 bln to $4.25-5.00 bln.

    Slightly negative for bond markets here as it decreases the level of guaranteed commitment to the long end, although mitigated by the fact that the overall scheduled buying amount remained unchanged. (In other words, the change is that the Fed is only promising $1.50 bln and $4.25 bln in those two operations whereas before they were in for a quarter of a billion dollars more.

    ECON: Chicago Purchasing Managers Index Weaker Than Expected
    *PMI at 62.2 vs 63.0 consensus, 64.0 in Feb
    *New Orders 63.3 vs 69.2 last time
    *Prices Paid 70.1 vs 65.6 in Feb
    *Employment Index 56.3 vs 64.2 last time

    The Chicago Purchasing Managers reported the March Chicago Business Barometer paused after February's ten month high. While slowing, the Chicago Business Barometer marked its fifth month above 60, a 2-1/2 year period of expansion and trend data improved. Increases were seen in five of eight Business Activity Indexes, highlighted by significant advances in Prices Paid and Inventories, and a notable lengthening in lead times for Production Material.
